OK here we go...

1999 K1200LT
Running well last season.

Took all the plastic off last week and did the following:
1. Removed charcoal filter
2. unplugged temp sensor from airbox
3. added a USB poser outlet
4. added new 330 CCA diehard battery
5. removed cd changer
6. removed radio
7. removed radio controls on the stingray
8. switched to LED lights for the instrument cluster.

Now I turn the key and the instrument cluster and lights come on. But, it will do nothing at all when I press the start button.

I do not hear the fuel pump engage, either.

I have tried:
the reset trick with the throttle
kickstand up and down
centerstand up and down
it is in forward
battery tested good
fuel had stabilizer
ground wires to the frame look solid and clean
fuse for fuel pump/motronics/diagnostic good

Kinda out of ideas. Was supposed to cut the brown wire on this model instead of removing the temp sensor?

Thank you
Brad

Sounds like you missed a wire to the battery + terminal. Look for a large black wire with a red sleeve on the eyelet. There should be 3 on there. Don’t cut the brown wire if you unplugged the air box. Doing both will make you too lean.

A diligent check of the area reviled only two wires from the bike. the other two positive cables are for the tender and the USB outlet.
nothing else on the negative side either.

did you make sure that the kickstand switch is connected and the connector to the instrument panel is connected as well. The only thing I can think of last is whether your starter relay is working or a blown fuse.

You are definitely missing a wire. I see the reverser controller wire one of the two main wires. Dig deeper.

What is on the negative post? There should only be one wire.
